Preamps.. wtf ..

Postby zxyz » Sun Apr 08, 2012 1:00 am

Hey you-all!!
I'm beginning the search for a direct into pc preamp (been using the ones from old multi-track tape machines) but need to find a good sounding transparent or warm one that'll go from mic or guitar into the PC-DAW. I've priced the black-lion, grace, dmp3, golden age, etc..etc.. from 50 bucks to 2000. (can't afford the latter at present :] Any favorites or advice?
Thanx in advance..

I've used far more expensive names in preamps but to be honest - the low line one that kim has always used is a best bang for the buck box.


behringer tube ultragain mic100

of course, a good mic or direct box is important and you gotta go into the PC with adapter cords but all in all - I really dig the sound and clarity of this unit. especially for only 39 quid.
you can't handle the truth.

nor do you want to ...
